Scam Alert: Social Security Spam Callers
There's always one of these scams going around and here is another one that may affect your social security or personal info.
According to WILX, the scam involves spam callers that will call people and be pretend to be from the Social Security Administration. They will ask for your personal information as well as ask for your social security number.
The weird thing about this whole scam is that people have complained to the Federal Trade Commission saying that these spam calls are coming from a number that pops up on the caller ID as from the "Social Security Administration." So the FTC is sending out a warning to people telling them that the Social Security Administration will never contact you randomly like this. So if you get one of these calls to not give up your personal information, and alert authorities if you do or have gotten a call from a spammer like this. More on the story here.
